Named Number 1, The Thames, it offers bespoke living quarters including two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room, as well as its very own garden complete with dog kennel and wisteria.

The house, which is part of a promotional exercise by online holiday lettings company Airbnb will be making its final stop at Putney Pier.

On board will be the winners of a competition who will be given a tour of Putney before returning to the house for a massage and dinner cooked by Michelin-starred chef, Robert Ortiz.

The designer of the house were twins Nick and Steve Tidball. They said, "This project brings to life so many things we hold dear, from the whimsy of our favourite Pixar films to the charming architecture of Primrose Hill. We love the idea that this house will see more in five days than most other houses see in a hundred years."
